it basically supports alot more audio formats then stock firmware does in general and allows for much more customization over stock firmware etc etc… the reason i bought my Sansa was so that i could run Rockbox which i accidentally discovered :wink:

p.s. been running Rockbox for a while now and it’s much better than stock firmware on my Sandisk Sansa e250 (2GB) player… and it takes less than 5minutes to install and get up and running once you know what to do on my particular player… the e200r series (i.e. the Rhapsody ones) are a little harder to install rockbox to (i did it on my cousins) than the e200 ones but it still works just as good once it’s up and running.
